college, the wall street journal and also nbc news. two-point lead for obama, that's down five points last month. keep in mind we're talking virginia, that's 13 electoral votes there. and check it out, similar story for you in florida. 29 electoral votes there. now, a one-point, one-point lead for obama, down from four points in september. we should mention here that poll shows the president still with the seven-point lead in ohio. we can't forget about ohio. but speaking nationwide here, the president's lead, in our cnn poll of polls, you can see it here, stands at 3 percentage points, unchanged. as we noticed today, kind of interesting, the president has gained one point and romney dropped one point. this is the gallup national tracking poll. obama with a six-point lead there, six-point lead in that one. the point to remember yet again here, game on in virginia. game on in florida with tonight's debate less than seven hours away. let's go straight to denver and to jim acosta. and, jim, does team romney, do they see the polls we ran through, is this a sign the race is tightening, is the w
you saw the surge obama had in the polls, it was a little too big, it's coming back down to earth. mitt romney is coming into range. he's got to both take obama down a notch but also make an aggressive case and to target audience, white women voters in particular. that's where he needs to make some progress. >> john harwood, thanks very much. john is going to join me and others for special coverage throughout tonight. this evening, in my view, romney needs to put obama on defense right at the beginning, take him to the cleaners, right out of the gate, no wasted time, do what john mccain did not get down four years ago. i hate to say that. this is a choice between tax cuts and tax hikes. you need to make that case. now i want to hear from our panelists in the kudlow caucus. former clinton white house aide, keith boykin. rick lazio, former republican congressman from new york. rick lazio, i begin with you, good evening to you. >> hello, larry. >> this is a gigantic audience, the key issue of our time is still the economy and jobs. so far mitt romney has not been able to make the sal
me. everything planned right down to the minute tonight. president obama will enter from the right. the governor from massachusetts, governor romney entering from the left. to give you an idea of the setting here, about 1,000 people inside this debate hall, when it starts. look behind the cameras tonight. we're inside a hockey arena that normally seats 8,000 but they've created this intimate setting as tens of millions watch from their living rooms tonight. when president obama and mitt romney walk onto that stage tonight, it will be the first time they've met face to face in four years. last time, during the presidential race in 2008, during those back-to-back democratic and republican presidential debates during the primaries when candidates from both sides were called on the stage, it was senator obama and governor romney talking. the president congratulated romney when he clinched the republican nomination and this moment in 2007, a labor day parade in 2007. >> good luck to you today. >> reporter: but tonight, they will shake hands in front of millions watching, before debating
in washington and how do you answer people who say simply obama let me down? why did you put that on the list? >>. >> because there's been so much talk recently about the hope and the change that a lot of people who supported obama in 2008 can't quite get behind romney. they want a reason to vote for obama and they haven't -- they just don't feel like obama has given them a reason yet. that's an opportunity for him to outline why he hasn't always followed through, why washington didn't change the way that he promised. . let me put the romney list. people can look at it on politico. many people tonight deduct mortgage interest from their income taxes, slashing their tax bim buys thousands of dollars every year. can you guarantee to those viewers you won't eliminate the cherished tax break from the middle class? and at the same time, name one tax loophole you have in your plan to eliminate to help balance the budget? he has been charged is question several time now john -- james, you know that of course. >> romney's problem is he hasn't given us specific, but he hasn't been. he could do change
not a great debator. >> look whose feelings about barack obama came back, and i guess what happened in charlotte stayed in charlotte. >> when american markets broke down, who jump-started our engine! barack obama! and when america needed him most, who got us rolling again on the road to recovery? >> barack obama! >> let me ask you this, people, who couldn't get laid in a whore house with a fist full of hundreds? barack obama! >> that's my favorite am way presentation ever. >> all right, i get it time honored tradition to attach down expectations to make a slight win. >> here is great news for republicans, we have a candidate who is going to do extraordinarily well on wednesday night, oh (bleep) we have a runner! we have a runner! >> what are you doing, christi? apparently new jersey governor chris christie didn't get the memo that romney sucks at this. >> i think you will see the numbers start to move right back in the other direction. >> in whole race will be turned upside down come thursday morning. >> what are you doing, christi? >> for god's sake if romney fails to meet thos
't. gerri: well, you have broken it down a little bit for us. obama's deputy campaign manager saying romney never explained how he would pay for his massive new tax cuts for the wealthy. we hear the president hitting home time and time and time again. he keeps saying that romney wants to up raise taxes on the middle-class. it seems to me that that is just ignoring the facts. what do you say? >> it is based on a phony study by the tax policy center at the brookings institution that really made up their assumptions of what that romney plan is. we look at this from a more dynamic effect and see that the romney plan would actually increase economic growth and increase wages across the board which is going to more than offset any sort of reductions that people would see or increases people might see in their taxes. by and large people get a tax cut because after all these cutting tax rates across the board by 20 percent, and the biggest thing that will benefit the economy is also cutting the corporate tax rate. as you know, we have the highest corporate tax rate in the world. all these things ad
incressed by $45 trillion. what about promising to bring down unemployment? president obama will spend 90 minutes tonight from 9:00 to 10:55 or whatever time talking about how -- >> you are in the crowd that romney is going to get the job without saying anything? you think romney can get the job without saying anything? >> dana: where do you get he hasn't said anything? >> bob: tell me what he said about medicare. >> dana: i am not a spokesperson for romney come pain. i read the 59-point plan which is darned detail you made fun of before. >> bob: it's laughable. >> dana: you can is not say he doesn't have a plan. it sounds so hollow. >> bob: what do you say it's not true? you have to lay it out. >> kimberly: you are making statements that are inaccurate. you may it or disapprove, your right, but the american people should decide whether or not they think he can do a better job. >> bob: you know something i don't know. tell me what is the plan? >> eric: who cares -- >> kimberly: why do i care about the liberals? why are you caring about the liberals? >> bob: you said he has a plan. i don't
between a republican party that has a double down on greed and fear -- for the super-rich versus president obama of who is trying to steer a middle course. i like to see him steer a little bit more, frankly, even progressive to the progressive side, but compared to where romney is, i think that we have such a clear choice. it looks like the american pink building so as well. basically, more and more people have come to see how corrupted the american political system is, how dysfunctional wall street is, how on equal our society is and how we are not getting out of this trap until we address these issues much more fundamentally than we have. whether we are going to do that or not, i do not know, but the events over the last year showed that we need to. tavis: you reference present obama and governor romney. tomorrow night, wednesday, the first of these four debates, three between mr. romney and mr. obama. tomorrow is the first that we will see them on the same stage. in advance of that debate tomorrow night, yesterday in "the wall street journal" mr. romney had a piece. the piece was titled
. kennedy and johnson. we have had that to face down the powerful interests. president obama had the mandate to do it in 2009, as we have been discussing. i do not think he did it the way he could have done it. i am hoping after the election he will see that america needs is so much, the leadership to actually move beyond the vested interest right now, that he will take that as his personal legacy need as well as our countries priority. tavis: out in paperback with a brand new preface -- "the price of civilization." written by jeffrey sachs. jeffrey sachs, good to have you on this program. we appreciate your insights. thanks for your time. >> thank you so much. tavis: thanks for watching. >> there is a saying that dr. >> there is a saying that dr. king had that said there is always the right time to do the right thing. i try to live my life every day by doing the right thing. we know that we are only halfway to completely eliminating hunger and we have work to do. walmart committed $2 billion to fighting hunger in the u.s. as we work together, we can stamp hunger out. >> and by contributions
and friends first. it is october the 3rd. >> it is the final count down to president obama and mitt romney tonight. the first presidential debate taking place in denver, colorado. peter doocy is here. we are going to get right to it. he is live for us in washington with a preview. good morning, peter. >> good morning, heather. vice president biden was down in charlotte north carolina yesterday talking about tax policies and the differences between democrats and republicans when he came out and said the middle class has been buried since president obama took office. >> this is deadly ernst. how they can justify raising taxes to the middle class has been buried for the last 4 years. how in the lord's name can they justify it? >> now instead of focusing solely on tonight's denver the obama campaign is doing damage control even though the vice president changed had. some of the harm done once to the strong middle class republicans are taking the comments and running with it. >> vice president biden just today said that the middle class over the last four years have been quote buried. we agree.

down playing it, barack obama downplaying it, but the american public shows that they believe barack obama will have the edge tonight. of course, we can say what we want to about the poll numbers and what the american public will see, but we won't know the answer until 11:00 this evening. >> mark preston down in denver, can you feel the electricity already? >> absolutely. it is early here, john, but it is starting to ramp up, no doubt. >> great. we'll talk to you again. >>> look for a couple corks beyond what they just say in delivery tone and body language are as important to voters as the substance of what the candidate is saying, to some voters. here's what to watch for as body language experts say when mitt romney is agitated, his arms fail around a bit. and president obama has a tendency to go on and on. he's long-winded and both candidates do well when they are standing at podiums. now in the next half hour of "early start," we'll break down what each candidate has to establish with richard socarides and erick erickson. >> i'm a little nervous for them. >> this is the super bow
obama described mitt romney's economic plan as tax cuts for the rich and trickle-down economics. do these descriptions bear any resemblance to the truth? economist thomas sowell has been looking into this and joins us next to tell us where all this rhetoric came from. lauren: regulation nation, the founder of med assets is here to tell us why president obama's prescription won't fit what is really ailing this country's health care system. david: president obama almost certain to characterize mitt romney's tax plans tonight as tax cuts for the rich, or awe kise him of advocating trickle-down economics as he has done before but is that a fair characterization. where did it come from? famed economist thomas sowell has been looking into all this. he wrote an essay, trickle down theory and tax cuts for the rich published by hoover institution press and professor sowell joins us now. professor, always an honor to have you here. thanks for coming in. >> thanks for having me. david: so has any republican actually ever advocated something called trickle-down economics? >> neither a republica
. they hate president obama because we might be going down the road to make sure more americans get health insurance. by the way, a new study says mitt romney's health care plan wouldn't just take us back it the levels of uninsured americans that existed before obama care, it would actually make things worse. according to the fund, romney's plan would increase the number to 72 million. i guess sam zell thinks that would give those people an incentive to succeed? when you're a billionaire, you really don't have to worry about anything, do you? let's turn to e.j. dionne, msnbc contributor and author of the book "our divided political heart." great to have you with us tonight. it would seem to me if there was one portion of our society quiet about the way things are going in our economy it would be the wealthiest americans. how does this play out? >> you know, this is a very, very strange and disturbing thing, as you said. i mean the piece that's inspiring a lot of conversations about this is the wonderful piece in "the new yorker" which is a real document for our time. one of the things she
turned a nation of pick pockets into a nation of al capones and now obama is taking down for winding down his surge. this is grotesque -- >> bill: you both agree that the afghan thing has gone south. it's not the way -- look, iraq, whether you like the war or not, we got out of there with dignity and we gave that country a fighting chance to be a decent country. all right? i think we all agree with that. right? we got out with dignity, we gave the government there a chance. whether they take the chance or not, i don't know. afghanistan doesn't even look like we're going to get out of there with a stable government 'cause karzai is a crook, i think he's a crook. and the taliban just waiting in the mountains of pakistan and come in as soon as we leave. okay. let's go to iran. the president says he's making inroads with alt sanctions, that they're suffering there and that they're going to cave and if they don't, he'll do what's necessary. what we must is what he said, to prevent them from having nuclear weapons. why has that policy failed? >> no government in modern history stopped another g
, you know, president obama has been down this road before. he did very well with hispanic voters four years ago, winning something like 67% of the hispanic vote nationwide. in north carolina, the hispanic vote while small can be significant. that's a state where president obama only won by 14,000 votes four years ago. there's many more hispanic voters than that. i think the philosophy or the strategy for the romney camp i to try to win some of those voters back. they're doing it by going on the air with advertising. a lot of the advertising is advertising introducing mitt romney to voters because aate lot of people don't know him. biographical ads. you have some with his son craig who is a fluent spanish speaker, speaking directly to hispanics. that's very important. he does that. then you've also got some ads where they talk about an ad they call the truth. they try to tell what they see as the truth about president obama where he's fallen short. they're trying to sell that kind of three-pronged message to hispanics in raleigh and try to win some of tho votes >> woodruff: this is a m
build it as a bomb shell tape. a 2007 campaign speech where then senator obama criticizes the bush administration's response to hurricane katrina. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where is your dollar? tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> speaking to a prodominantly black audience, obama suggested they were holding recovery money. after other major disasters, the government cut through the red tape to provide aide. >> you are part of the american family. >> conservative commentators say the president's speech was racially charged and devicive. it did not cause controversy when it was covered five years ago and the senior adviser to mitt romney's campaign was asked whether it is relevant to the current election. >> voters have to make that up. they have to look at that video and make up their mind on that individually. >> the white house has not commented about the video, but a senior obama campaign adviser talked about it this morning. >> if the republicans want to defend the bush administration's response, i'm sure
down. those -- >> well, college costs have gone up 25% under president obama. what i find so interesting about all the conversation about ryan's budget i hope that jim lehrer and all the media who are watching and commenting on this debate expect the same level of specificity from president obama that they asked for from governor romney because president obama has failed to deliver a single budget. >> right. >> in four years. it's unbelievable actually. so forget the ryan budget. what's the obama budget? >> after lehrer asks your hypothetical he should play a clip of paul ryan in conversation with timothy geithner, secretary of the treasury. they had this great back and forth where geithner basically said, well, we know we don't like your plan. and we don't really have a plan of our own. and that's the difficulty the president's in, right? he can attack the ryan budget all he wants, but those kids you're talking about they're graduating with a big overhang of, you know, debt and deficits as well to pay off down the road. >> and unemployment levels are at historic highs among
counting down to the first debate between president obama and governor mitt romney. why tonight's showdown in denver may be so critical to their hopes for november. and we'll also hear from both sides. and why a fiery speech by president obama is setting off media fireworks five years later. we want to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world. i'm wolf blitzer. you're in "the situation room." >>> we're counting down to the crucial first debate between barack obama and mitt romney. our live coverage begins in two hours. much more on that just ahead. but right now there's breaking news we're following. the united states is closely watching the latest developments in the middle east where the nato ally, turkey, has fired on targets inside syria after the deadly shelling of a turkish border town. cnn senior international correspondent ivan watson is joining us on the phone now from istanbul. it's not every day, ivan, that a nato ally, in this particular case turkey, is drawn into potentially another war with a neighbor, syria, what happened? >> reporter: well, in the after
faceoff between president obama and governor romney. jamie: the latest search for a killer who gunned down a young border patrol agent. >> the tears flowed freely thinking about his wife and children who will grow up without their father with them. bill: a multi million dollar federal information sharing program from the department of homeland security. a scathing senate report says the program has done little to make the nation secure since 9/11. lawmakers are demanding answers with the homeland security department and steve centanni is live in washington on this. i said millions, it might be billions. tell us more. what did this report uncover? >> reporter: the investigation by the senate homeland security and government affairs committee found lavish experiencing that contributed little to national security. the program was designed in the wake of 9/11 to help coordinate communication between state, local and federal law enforcement agency. here is how the homeland security chief talked about it earlier this year about the 77 centers around the country. >> it's the heart of our preventi
for his argument that barack obama has not gotten it down and how he would. the format tonight might help him do that. bill: let's talk about the rules. you have got six 15-minute segments. the economy, healthcare and a segment on the role of government in governing. each man gets 2 minutes and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connect
polling shows today that president obama has lost support. just three points down from 12 last month. however, the president still holds formidable leads among women voters in ohio and virginia. joining me now -- the sight of tonight's debate. it's great to have you here. showing president obama losing support with women voters. why do you think that might be the the case there? >> i think that women voters are looking at mitt romney's policies and they're realizing that they're not good for women. economic policies. the health care policies. family planning. in florida, of course, medicare's a big issue. women really want to look at candidates that are going to support issues that help women and families and that's what's going on. i think in florida and around the country. >> but do you think because the pol polling is is showing the president is losing support -- that he has been campaigning op are not good for women? >> oh, well, i think that, i'm sorry, i misunderstood. i thought you said president obama was winning in florida. i still think that as women begin to look at the po
's the back drop of the debate. and this is the latest poll, president obama with a 3 point lead, that's down from the 5 point lead about ten days ago, two weeks ago, we put that entire tape of president obama on our facebook page, please check it out and tell us what you think and we'll read comments in the next hour. vice-president joe biden says the middle class has been buried the past four years, a clear gaffe in my opinion. is he right? i say, yes, he is. we get a democratic congressman's response in, and we'll bring you the opening bell as well. when we got married. i had three kids. and she became the full time mother of three. it was soccer, and ballet, and cheerleading, and baseball. those years were crazy. so, as we go into this next phase, you know, a big part of it for us is that there isn't anything on the schedule. i took my son fishing every year. we had a great spot, not easy to find, but worth it. but with copd making it hard to breathe, i thought those days might be over. so my doctor prescribed symbicort. it helps significantly improve my lung function starting within five
, that confront us all. lou: the obama's campaign supporters doing everything they could to be down the story even before it was revealed on hannity last night. the response team sent out a list of skeptical from the york magazine and the "new york times" all professing the injustice station justice saying that the video was published before. we will take up with the former pentagon official and former reagan advisor the "a team" the most important question is if governor romney comes out swinging or takes a more passive approach joining us now is steve hayes. in the way the world you could imagine governor romney to be so secure if he would not be aggressive? >> no. he could be because the advice suggest the does everything he can from look being too aggressive listening to focus groups with suburban housewives who like obama may have voted for him and do not want to see somebody attack the guy they voted 47 but certainly attacking the policies and their consequences painfully to millions of americans. >> remain on the side of those arguing mitt romney needs to be aggressive. lou: i tried to smok
to summer time for one day only. >> tomorrow. here is the visibility right now. is down to half a mile in the valley. it will slow things down. showers coming in. tomorrow, temperatures into the mid 80's tomorrow. >> all right. [laughter] president obama: during the last weeks of this campaign... there will be debates, speeches, and more ads. but if i could sit down with you, in your living room or... around the kitchen table, here's what i'd say. when i took office, we were losing nearleight hud.red... thousand jobs a month, and were mired in iraq. today, i believe that as a nation we are... moving forward again. but we have much more to do to get folks back to work and... make the middle class secure again. now, governor romney believes that with even bigger... cux cuts for the wealthy, and fewer regulations... on wall street, all of us will prosper. in other words, he'd double down on the same trickle-down... policies that led to the crisis in the first place. so what's my plan? first, we creaeate a million new manufacturing jobs... and help businesses double their e
a quick show around, if we can. they'll shake hands in the middle, mitt romney and president obama. the president will stand at the podium on the right, mitt romney at the podium on the left. this debate is separated into six 15-minute segments focusing heavily on the economy. touching down in denver this afternoon, president obama has prepared more for these debates than any sitting president in the modern era. while anticipation builds at the tightly controlled debate site mitt romney fine tuned his message in private, advisers say, relaxing with three of his sons and fueling up on a peanut butter and honey sandwich. >> i believe that the 21st century can be better than the 20th. >> you can do that. it's your future. go claim it. >> reporter: outside the debate hall cameras caught a brief glimpse of the candidates' motorcades. their walkthroughs inside the 1500-seat arena, kept out of view. >> two, three, four, five. >> reporter: for days advisers from both sides have been negotiating details from lighting to the angle of the podiums. the rules even address which spouse will be i
for the occasion. for example, when we greet each other on stage before the debate, i'll put my finger on obama's tie and say, there's something on your tie. when he looks down, i'll slide my finger from his sternum to his nostrils and say, boop. for instance, when obama is talking during the debate i'll interrupt him and say that's what she said? ha, ha, ha. gets them every time. last week, my campaign leaked a memo telling everyone to lower expectations for my performance in these debates. as we all know barack obama is an extremely gifted speaker. you might even say he's a master debater. that's what she said? you got zing. you got zing. >> i don't know, man. fallen is giving zadakas a run for his moment on this romney impression. >>> here's the latest. >> mr. president, china is demanding that the u.s. pay back its debt in full immediately. failure to do so will bring on financial apocalypse. you need to look into that camera and convince the people of china we are good to pay back that debt. >> why you got to play me like that, china? when you loan that money to my predecessors, did you re
there and be cool and keep a smile on your face. inside you want to fall down. >> reporter: four years ago, michelle obama would get so nervous during the debates she didn't like to watch them. she'll be there tomorrow in the debate hall. we turn to david muir who is there. david? >> reporter: hey, jake. i'll see you right here in the debate hall tomorrow night. tonight, here are some key decisions made moments ago. a coin toss between the campaigns determining that president obama will be introduced first and will have the first question. governor romney will get the final argument. there was even a toss about which of the wives will be introduced first. ann romney will be introduced first. i want to show the debate stage. both podiums. both candidates will stand with one another. that's why the romney team is concentrating on the answers and the body language. where was he earlier today? take a look at the pictures that came in. at chipotle. getting in line with senator rob portman who has been playing president obama in mock debates. taking pictures with some of the workers there. we asked the su
administration has been trying to shut down guantanamo since president obama took office and when they couldn't get that done through congress, they just simply changed tactics and now they're just trying to get everybody out of there and shut it down that way. so i wasn't surprised they had made a deal to send omar to canada. canned at that -- canada really didn't want him but didn't feel like they had a choice in the matter. so that's where we're at. jenna: those met with this man, forensic psychiatrists, for example, describe him as highly dangerous. say he has no regret for what he did. they call him a rock star at gitmo. what kind of risk does he pose now that he is number one, out of gitmo and number two, could be paroled within maybe a year? >> yes. omar khadr is not done. he is never expressed any regret. on the contrary, when he is feeling depressed or feeling down, he warms himself with the thought of killing chris speer. he is very open about that. this young man is a confirmed, a dedicated,. >> gnawed -- jihadist. he has been in guantanamo for 10 years and done nothing to prepare
